hey, yeah, i love that film for its cinematography. roger avary the director also had something to do with pulp fiction, so i bet he had some practice. But i guess you already know this. I suppose the only saving grace of this movie, i'd have to admit is the cinematography.

I just saw The Cranes are Flying and I have a new number one. Every shot is brilliance and any flaw in the film can easily be overlooked on the strength of the cinematography.

Had to add Vilmos Zsigmond to the list of great cameramen.
McCabe and Mrs. Miller, The Deer Hunter, etc.
